Important Changes: MAiD Standard Under Revision
Bill C-7 has been passed by the Senate and received Royal Assent. It is now in force and is the law. As such, the College is amending its Standard to reflect the important changes in Canada’s legal approach to Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). These changes include a pathway to eligibility to MAiD for patients whose natural death is not reasonably foreseeable, as well as ongoing eligibility for patients who have lost capacity after having been found to be eligible (Audrey’s Amendment).
